a.k.a. NCSA Mosaic
Mosaic is the common name of the first World Wide Web browser. It is a software application that was developed at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, by Marc Andreessen, Eric Bina, and others. Building on code written by Tim Berners-Lee, Mosaic was the first cross-platform browser available and became the precursor to Netscape, which officially started the popularity of the Web. It is copyrighted as "NCSA Mosaic," and the source code was licensed to several companies, including Netscape.
